Synopsis: 

Shifting fluidly between everyday existence in the West Bank and the violence and unease generated by the Israeli occupation, this Oscar-nominated, Cannes jury prize-winning thriller is built upon striking contrasts. Three men launch an assault on an Israeli outpost, leading to a dilemma whose ethical consequences seem impossible to navigate.
